Heartless Embrace

Someone trying to compel their lover to leave them, not because they've grown apart, but because they feel that their relationship is mutally destructive....enjoy

I tried to save you from myself

Our love deteriorates to different kinds of hell

And from what I can tell

What I once tried to do

Was nowhere near enough

 

Let me away from the light

And maybe I can save you from the night

Drowning, taking a chance in sorrow

For you there’s hope and the dawn of tomorrow

 

There’s nothing for me here

I will collapse into darkness

And disappear

My heart becomes fragments, drifting free

Save yourself baby, these demons haunt you not me

 

I cry out for the rush and the crushing failure

Locked tight in a heartless embrace

No sight of any saviour

Addiction smiles cruelly

When I try to save myself

My soul destroys itself

 

There’s nothing for me here

I will collapse into darkness

And disappear

My heart becomes fragments, drifting free

Save yourself baby, these demons haunt you not me

 

You stay close right next to me

I find hope accelerates towards the sky

And from what I can perceive

Maybe the hope has not yet died

And what I can do now

May finally work for you

 

There’s nothing for me here

I will collapse into darkness

And disappear

My heart becomes fragments, drifting free

Save yourself baby, these demons haunt you not me

The End
